League One preview and odds: Peterborough vs. Fleetwood

November 14, 2015 15:00pm - London Road Stadium

League One

Mid-table dwellers Peterborough will welcome relegation candidates Fleetwood Town to London Road Stadium for this League One clash on Saturday afternoon.

Peterborough basking in mid-table safety

Peterborough are in a precarious position, six points away from the play-off zone and six points above the relegation places. A couple of results either way could send them quickly heading towards either end of the table. Boss Graham Westley will be well aware that there is absolutely no room for complacency in this league, even in the relative comfort of the mid-table places.

Boro have not been entirely convincing at home this term, having won just three of the eight games that they have played at London Road so far. There current record on their own turf stand at W3 D2 L3. Incredibly, their last four home games - including their recent 4-0 demolition of Doncaster Rovers - have produced a total of 22 goals. They come into this game on the back of a 3-2 defeat away to high-flying Coventry City.

Difficult second season for Fleetwood

After an impressive 10th place finish in their first season in League One, Fleetwood fans may have been hoping for a promotion push this year. However, it has been a tough start to the new campaign for the Lancashire club. They have been particularly poor away from home having lost six of their eight games on the road so far.

The Cod Army come into this game on the back of a 2-0 FA Cup defeat at the hands of Walsall last weekend and a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win, via a penalty shootout, over Sheffield United in midweek.

Team news

Jack Baldwin will be missing for Peterborough after seeing red in last week’s FA Cup win at Burton. The defender had only just returned from a ligament injury that had kept him out of action for more than a year. Meanwhile, Gabriel Zakuani remains a doubt after picking up a head injury in the same game.
